I know the Cajun Bpipe/JBA headers route is what most of the guys here recommend but I’m curious if any of you guys went the factory fit route (none oem) and what your experience has been.

I just replaced the driver side header with an aftermarket OEM style from A1 Auto. The only reason I did it is because I do my own work and once you know how to do it, it's not all that hard. If you are paying a shop or want to make sure not having to re-do the job any time soon, you might want to go the known aftermarket route, as you mentioned above.

Unfortunately, so far I only have a thousand miles or so on my new hader, can't really comment yet.

The replacements he used looked really good, they are reinforced where they always crack.

I appreciate the feedback. I am pretty good mechanically but manifolds aren’t something I’ve ever done so I’m leaving it up to the pros at the exhaust shop.

The job isn't that difficult, if you are a little mechanically inclined. That being said, it just involves a lot of taking apart and putting back together. Nothing much you can do wrong. If you have the time, its a good way to save some money
